Virtual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes 2020

September 3, 2020 @ 12:00 am – September 14, 2020 @ 12:00 am America/New York Timezone

Please join us for our 8th Annual Walk A Mile In Her Shoes Virtual event!

Every year in the U.S., an estimated 12 million men and women are victims of rape, physical violence and stalking by an intimate partner. We are walking 12 miles in 12 days to honor those victims. In other words, we’re walking a mile a day!

Register for our walk and set your goal of walking one mile a day. Also set a fundraising goal! Every penny you raise goes directly to Women In Need to help us provide services for victims in Franklin and Fulton Counties. Plus, you’ll earn some cool prizes!

Anyone can register for this event, and registration is pay-what-you-want by donation. By registering, you’ll also get set up with your own fundraising page that you can share! 
Starting Thursday, September 3rd through Monday, September 14, track your steps with ChallengeRunner. Aim to get at least 2,000 steps a day.
At the end of the challenge, the person who gets the most steps will win a gift basket full of awesome goodies! Those who participate in fundraising/donating will also win some cool prizes based on how much they raise.
Prize tiers (prizes are cumulative):
-$10 to $24- WAM 2020 mask
-$25 to $74- WAM 2020 t-shirt
-$75 to $99- WAM water bottle
-$100 to $199- WAM tote bag
-$200 to $299- Entry to win GrubHub and Doordash Gift card bundle
-$300 to $399- Entry for quarantine-themed prize basket (fun games and goodies you can do from the safety of your own home)
-$400 to $499- Entry for fitness tracker drawing
-$500 plus- Entry for tablet drawing
*If you previously registered before when the walk was to take place in-person, please know that your registration will still count towards the virtual event.*
Thank you for being patient with us as we work to navigate the best way to host this event while ensuring the safety of all participants, volunteers, and staff. We sincerely hope to see you in-person again for the walk next year!
